Atlantis Galera Dive Centre has one of the most spacious camera facilities you will find in any dive resort worldwide. Like its sister dive centre in Dumaguete, there are 21 individual cubbyholes to store equipment with a work surface 80cm deep with a shelf running the length of the work surface for battery chargers and eight fluorescent under-shelf lights. Five air-guns and 16 sets of power sockets in both 220 and 110 volts are positioned around the room.
The facility has 42-inch HD flat-screen TV mounted on the wall with both HDMI and USB connections so guests can show off their photos and video on the big screen at the end of a day’s great diving!
Atlantis Puerto Galera also offers Fluoro Night Dives, where using a special filtered blue light and a yellow mask visor you can see first-hand the magic of fluorescence.
Atlantis Puerto Galera has some of the most diverse coral reef diving in South East Asia, located at the very heart of the ‘Coral Triangle’, offering everything from entry-level diving to diving in strong currents. The reefs are well protected by the local dive schools. Coral and fish life are recovering very well from earlier abuse by dynamite fishing and give a very good idea of the biodiversity of Philippine’s marine life.
Highlights are the dive sites around Verde Island with beautifully overgrown cliffs, good fish life and strong currents; and The Canyons, also with strong currents, great coral growth and an abundance of fish. Nudibranch City has an incredible variety of sea slugs and the Sabang Bay is a great place for macro photography with pygmy seahorses, frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpion fish and much more. Diving is possible all year round with good visibility most of the time and moderate currents.
The Atlantis Puerto Galera is a nice place to spend your holiday. They offer a great choice of accommodation styles and fantastic food and service. A great resort for underwater photographers – the facilities are outstanding.
